Conversion and storage of modes with orbital angular momentum in quantum memory scheme

Research output


The paper studies the Raman quantum memory protocol as applied to quantum light with orbital angular momentum. The memory protocol is implemented on an ensemble of three-level cold atoms with the Λ- configuration of energy levels. The possibility of storing quantum statistics of light with an orbital momentum is analysed in the case when the driving field could be treated as a plane wave. The efficiency analysis shows that examined storage/retrieval processes do not cause the efficiency decreasing compared with the spatial multimode memory protocol considered in [Golubeva et al. 2012]]. We also present an effective transformation of the orbital angular momentum of a quantum field on a memory cell using the driving field with orbital angular momentum.
